Norton System Works by Symantec has a Wipe Disk Feature that will take off any unwanted data.  It is reputed to completely obliterate the data by a series of overwriting.

Subject: Off Topic - Hard Drive Cleanup Software

I'm going to switch some computers around between my office and my house.  I want to make sure there are not remnants of financial or client data left on the hard drives to surface down the road, especially if we later donate the computers to others.  Can anyone recommend any software specifically for making sure erased data is truly earsed?  I'd rather do that than have to format the disks and reinstall the software we want to keep.
